Under the banner of the Entrepreneurship Learning Centre (ELC), an Alberta Video Conference Network has been established to provide business information and interactive training opportunities to Alberta’s small business community.
This network is comprised of 35 uniquely equipped business development centres that use IP-based video conferencing equipment to educate and communicate with entrepreneurs across Alberta. Video conferencing allows you to participate as you would in any meeting or training session in real time. You can ask questions, provide feedback, or enter into discussion with other participants in real time. Presenters are able to interact with all locations and use a PowerPoint presentation as they would in any meeting or presentation. It is great because the participants are able to view two screens; one with the presenter and the other with the presentation.
This Network has allowed us to:
- Access training and expertise.
We have been able to participate in training sessions that may
not have been previously available in our community.
- Connect Live.
Video conferencing has allowed us to connect in real time with
people in locations throughout the province.
- Save time and reduce our travel costs.
Now we do not have to leave our community to participate
in training or meetings.
- Host our own meetings.
Using video conference equipment, we can connect with our
business associates to help us do business more efficiently
and cost effectively.
